Colossus Costume Guide

On the big-screen action film Deadpool, Colossus (also known as Piotr Rasputin) is a mutant who grew up in the time of the tragic Chernobyl disaster in Soviet Ukraine. As a result of this, he has mutant abilities that make him immensely powerful, mainly the ability to cover himself in a dense metallic layer to protect himself during altercations.

Colossus plays an important part on Deadpool as he convinces Wade to use his powers for good rather than evil, and Wade does indeed follow through with this and get Colossus to help him in a rescue mission. Don your own superhuman strengths this year with an incredible Colossus costume!

How to Dress Like Colossus from ‘Deadpool’


Colossus has dark brown hair in a military-style crew cut, which takes on a metallic look just like the rest of him when he uses his abilities.

To create the same metallic Colossus look, dust in a good scattering of shiny silver makeup eyeshadow mixed with liquid hair gel. You can find these products at any drugstore or some online makeup websites.

Body and Face:

When his powers are utilized, Colossus resembles a massive, glimmering chrome statue. His body armor is durable, lightweight yet functional, and makes him a very powerful-looking figure. You can purchase metallic costume extremities like arms and legs from online costume websites, retail stores and Halloween stores, or you can make your own from scrap metal or painted EVA foam.

For the face, purchase a metallic-looking mask from a Halloween store or online retail website. Or, better yet, use some metallic face paint. Wear a gray long-sleeved shirt underneath so any gaps in the metal will mesh well.


Colossus wears a black sleeveless suit with faded red accents on the front, and a belt with an x-shaped buckle. You can use a sleeveless black bodysuit for this if you want or you can purchase a costume suit from any Halloween store or website.

You can paint the red onto the front of the suit yourself using fabric paint. Allow it to dry before wearing!

For the belt, check out online retail websites or costume shops for a black belt with a silver rectangular buckle that has a letter X filling the middle.


Colossus wears heavy black military-style boots on his feet. You can find these online from most retail websites, or you can purchase locally from any shoe store or military surplus store.
